Postales is the 10th release of La Breve Historia, a project of short films made by Pablo Santidrian and Inés Pintor. This story, which is narrated on split screen format, is about two characters who send hand drawn postcards daily to each other, during their vacations. For this reason, two graphic styles have been designed: an educated one which illustrates different scenes from the events occuring at their vacation time, and a ‘newbie’ one, which only comprises hand drawn lettering over simple color blocks, because of the character’s inability to draw.
During the process of the story, characters receive these postcards and hang them in a particular order on their wall. At the end of the story, the viewer discovers that this particular order gets the shape of the island’s map where the story takes action.
